Rumour Mill: New AMD GPUs and CPUs at CES 2019?
CES will be taking place between 8.01. and 12.01.2019 in Las Vegas. CES is one of the largest exhibitions for electronics companies in the world of PC hardware outside of Computex in Taipei. It also happens to be one of the most popular events for introducing new products. The Texan chip manufacturer AMD will - if rumours are true - use the show to demonstrate their brand new 7 nm graphics cards and processor series: Ryzen 3000 and Radeon RX 3000.
At wccftech.com new rumours on the graphics cards (external link) and processors(external link) from AMD have appeared. Computerbase.de (external link) also cites a previously reliable source for predictions relating to AMD's Epyc series of CPUs. On this occasion there are rumours about the new RX series of graphics cards that are based on the Navi GPU architecture as well as 3000-series Ryzen processors. Both ranges are rumoured to be manufactured using the new 7nm node and built using a new architecture.

AMD Ryzen 3000: Zen 2 & 7 nm Process
A chiplet design will be used for the Ryzen processors, similar to that of the large server CPUs. The individual Zen 2 CPU dies will be connected to one another by means of Infinity Fabric, and the same holds true for Navi GPU CUs when it comes to APUs. It seems that Zen 2- and Navi dies will be manufactured in 7 nm, although a 14 nm die may form a stopgap measure. The AM4 socket will continue to be used as before, although depending on the chipset used, especially on older motherboards, some of the new Ryzen CPUs' latest features may not be used. Older rumours about the new Ryzen processors also hint that the L3 cache will be doubled in size. Even memory support will be extended and optimised.
Here is an overview of the possible new Ryzen processors:
